Labrador Seeing Eye Dog Blind
Labrador Seeing Eye Dog Blind, Tanner is a golden retriever who, due to cataracts, is blind in both eyes and suffers from a seizure disorder that causes him to lose control of his body (including his bladder and bowels), sometimes several times a night. Because of this, his owner was forced to give him up to a clinic where vets often suggested putting him down.
But, wait! A happy twist! One day in the play yard, Tanner encountered Blair, a street dog brought in after she was shot (thankfully, she has since convalesced). Like something out of a storybook, the two dogs struck up a friendship in which Blair acts as a seeing eye dog and companion for Tanner, even leading him by a leash. Since pairing off, Tanner has completely stopped having seizures and Blair, who was suffering from post-traumatic stress that caused her to be timid and nervous, has grown remarkably more confident and social with humans and dogs alike.
